thrifting goodness

I found this lovely piece of serving ware at rehouse for only $2! It works perfectly for veggies and dip and will fit in nicely at the fifties party!

I found this fabulous 8 piece snack set at a garage sale store in Brockport. I paid $2.99-what a steal! I haven't had a chance to use them yet but I do hear them calling for a nice slice of pie and tea.

**Stay tuned for pictures of an 82 piece dinnerware set I bought for $19. Yes folks-82 pieces for less than 20 big ones! They don't call me the thrifter extraordinaire for nothing!

riding the short bus

A short bus adventure took place last weekend as we rode to the German Festival. Delicious cake, beer sliding, and mooning mark the highlights of a Saturday filled with awesomeness.

camping goodness

After hearing many complaints about my lack of updating, I thought it was about time to post on my exciting life. This past weekend I enjoyed a wonderful weekend camping at my Aunt and Uncle's property in Big Flats, NY. It rained for the first day and half, but luckily they have a pavilion for such occasions. Not only was there thunder and lighting, but it actually hailed! The rest of the time was beautiful and sunny. Our time was spent playing games, canoeing, swimming, riding the gator through the woods, playing horseshoes and hitting golf balls. Each day Aunt Sandy brought us treats, including blueberry shortcake (with whipped cream and fresh biscuits!), AMAZING blueberry muffins, and pitchers of margaritas! The blueberries were handpicked-we both have nasty sunburns to prove it! Uncle Joe even made steaks for the meat eaters in honor of Luke's birthday. Speaking of Luke, please direct yourself to his blog if you want more camping info-including an awesome bog video (which I highly recommend)!

I couldn't resist posting the picture of a few of us huddled together during the storm. Stayed tuned...more pictures will be posted on my flickr account.
